You know you're in trouble when you're employing people who need an acronym for the instruction "SUSPECT EVERYONE"

Everyone with a cockney accent should expect some enhanced pat-downs in their travelling future.

Good to see they took it seriously enough to press their platitude list in form of a backronym.

Is that the deal with these new alphabet block avatar thingies? Spelling out vertical secret messages in the margins?

Also a nice handy list for Bad People (tm) who want to come to the UK on what to avoid. Having valid looking ID, and booking a return flight in advance is easy enough.
